Hi there,
I think it's time for a dedicated Sony Alpha A6000 images thread. I start with a couple pics with the Sony-Zeiss 16-70/4 OSS lens.













Enjoy ,
Stefan

Thanks for starting this Stefan. I hope to get mine next week and start contributing.

What's happening around the light bulbs in the last image? They all seem to have a wide flare/glow around them. Can you post a crop?

Do you have any wide M mount lenses?

Mike

Yes, thanks for starting this thread, Stefan. I too await the arrival of my A6000 + Sony-Zeiss 16-70/4 OSS lens.

I've got the same question/observation as Mike regarding the halos/glow around the light bulbs. What seems to be going on there?

Cheers!

Mike, it's there in the file. It was already quite dark, so it's a high dynamic range. Wether it comes from the sensor or the lens, I don't know. Here's the crop of a mostly unprocessed version:



I have no wide M-lenses.

I tested against a lamp. The 16-70 lens produces some halos in difficult light conditions while the 12 tout didn't. Both at f4.

What is DRO?

Rainy outside but tried out the Nex 5n with the new FE 70-200mm f4 giving an effective 300mm AF with OSS.

Handheld at 1/40th

I'm hoping Sony didn't manage to introduce the A7's flare issues into the A6000.

Have a look by yourself.

I wouldn't call the Touit shot a flare issue even though it's not perfect.

I think it's essentially HDR? I took a single shot out of the hand.

Not HDR -- I think it's just tone mapping to compress the DR (lifting shadows and bringing down highlights). Many cameras have this function (5Dmk2 for instance), but it affects jpegs, not RAW.


Your 4th shot in your opening post reminded me of the A7 flare issue because the distance between the flares and the light source, which increases with the radial distance from the image center. The flare in your test shots doesn't look excessive, but I haven't seen similar test shots from the A7.

Some pictures with the 18-105. It's got bad reputation because of the distortion, but recent versions of LR solve it pretty well. It's got lovely backgroung blur, except something the bokeh looks a bit harsh. I think it's a great 500$ lens, but a bit expensive at 600-650$ given the issue with the bokeh. The size is larger than I would have liked it to be, but it is easy to manage since it doesn't extend and the balance of the camera never changes.

No halo issue with the 18-105, so it might be specific to the 16-70.

Great info and photos, folks. Thanks. I'll be sure to test the A6000 + 16-70 for the halo issues when they arrive. I'll post my results.

Cheers!

Perhaps someone can give me some feedback. I tested an a6000 today in a local store with the Zeiss 16-70 zoom, indoors at 400, 800, and 1600 ISO. Granted I was shooting at 1/40th and above at f4.0. The images are extremely soft, so much so that is was a deal breaker for me.
I tested the Zeiss lens the same way on my Nex-7 with great results. Was this just a bad demo camera?
